You Never Know What You're Going To Find

The handle on my favorite purse broke last week so I grabbed my ole standby (which looks like a jiffy pop pan after the popcorn has been popped). I was in a hurry as always and just threw in my billfold, checkbook, lipstick and off I go. Today I was looking for a pen in my purse and realized there seemed to be an awful lot of unnecessary items. To my dismay this is what I found:



*not only the lipstick I put in, but FOUR tubes!!! All the same shade!!!

*crossword puzzle book

*Steinmart coupon that expired April 6th

*Bridal Shower invitation for June 10th

* (4) samples of Bio Freeze

*emery board

*large paper clip

* (1) MCDONALDS FRENCH FRY! WHAT!!!!!! (It looked perfectly normal which is scary)

*Business Card from Raddisson

*Kirklands 2 day only sale card

*An empty BC powder package

*Hand lotion

*2 starbursts

*waded up kleenex

*2 quick liner pencil for the lips

*tube Clinique Super Balm (at least there was only one, not four)

*Plastic ring Reid had given me a few weeks ago that I actually wore while shopping with him.

*Empty Chick fila peppermint wrapper

*A note with a phone number on it and I have absolutely no clue who's number it is!

*21 cents

*Receipts from Dillards, Target, Kroger, Walgreens, Walmart, The Limited, Newport Eyecare

*2 grocery lists

*And finally, AN INK PEN.

I could have gone on "Let's Make A Deal" and probably won. I mean a french fry for Pete's Sake!

Sure feels good to have a clean purse! Have a GREAT week everyone!

That's just too funny sis! Why in the world would you have just one french fry?

Leigh Ann said...

Oh, I LOVE a clean purse, but it seems mine becomes a "trash can" quicker than I can clean it out. I guess that is the way it goes when you are a busy mom. And, I think the french fry is part of the grandma role. I'm with you though, it is scary that the french fry looked edible even after sitting in a purse! Oh my!

Your purse is alot like mine! I swear I four kinds of lipstick and don't know why?

Also I get "money off" cards from Kohl's, ColdWater Creek, etc. and I carry them around until they are ragged and the day I finally get to the store...the coupon expired the day before!! Never fails!

I'm not sure about finding a French Fry but you never know for sure until you check out the bottom of the purse!! har

I promised myself I would read my comments before I hit that "publish" button but I never do. I left out the word "carry" in my second sentence....."I swear I carry four kinds...."

Oh my! We have a lot of the same items in our purses! I even have some BioFreeze. (Is that stuff not wonderful??)
Isn't it amazing what we can accumulate in there? never know when we might need it, right!

BTW..I LOVE your favorite purse AND your Jiffy Pop Bag! TOO CUTE!
